Global autonomous asset-tracking leader Globe Tracker International and monitoring, remote management, and data sharing services provider CakeBoxx Technologies, a company that provides door-less intermodal shipping containers, have announced a strategic partnership.
Under the agreement, both companies will combine their services and product offerings to supply the global shipping market with a pre-configured, off-the-shelf secure container and asset tracking solution.
Globe Tracker’s leading-edge smart container technology provides end-to-end supply chain visibility and a way for supply chain stakeholders to seamlessly and securely share shipment data.
Daine Eisold, President and CEO at CakeBoxx Technologies said “there has always been a natural nexus between the shipping container and asset tracking services. At CakeBoxx, we continue to look at the container more as a solution than merely a cargo conveyance. Teaming with Globe Tracker to integrate the two services at the production level makes total sense.
“Our customers appreciate the safety, security and efficiency of our CakeBoxx products, now we’ve taken the complexity of two more important decisions out of the equation — to track or not to track. And, whose service to use.
“The asset tracking space is highly competitive. With Globe Tracker we will offer our customers industry leading performance and innovation at an incredible price — so they can see the value for themselves without the angst of a complicated market analysis.”
Jim Davis, CEO of Globe Tracker, said: “Globe Tracker and CakeBoxx Technologies share a common vision around the proliferation of smart containers. We are excited to work with CakeBoxx Technologies to bring the future to our customers today.”
Don Miller, Director of Global Sales and Marketing at Globe Tracker, said: “The Cakeboxx design attracts a customer that wishes to mitigate risk of theft or pilferage of cargo in their containers. The door-less design does enable them to load more cargo in a container but it also allows them to have an extra level of security as it always requires heavy equipment to open a Cakeboxx container. It was a logical synergy for them to partner with Globe Tracker as the inherent high value in most of the containers leads to wanting to locate their containers anywhere in the World they might be.”
